Install vista on a new motherboard

Hello, I'm going to install a new cpu/motherboard in a few days, but I bought vista service sp1 microsoft digital locker that is now gone, but I never had the chance to make a dvd of it. Is - this from there anyway I did not reinstall windows when I put in the new motherboard? If I have to reinstall I can get a replacement cd or make my own? I have my product id, one who is under the properties of my computer, but it doesn't have the key number 25 just an id number 20. Please help me.

If you borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Hello

    Try uninstalling the drivers for all devices in the Device Manager (be sure that you select delete the driver for this deviceoption during the uninstall) and Control Panel.

    Then try to restart your computer and check to see if you can boot into normal mode.

    Steps to uninstall from Device Manager:

    a. After you open Device Manager, look for the device.
    b. right-click on it and choose Uninstall.

    Hi people,

    I'm new to this forum... I don't know that there, can someone advise me.
    I replace my Satellite L40 HDD with a bigger drive, the current is only 80Gig.

    And my question is, can I use my Toshiba recovery Disc to reinstall Vista on the new HARD drive, or is it a hidden partition on the original HARD drive?
    If someone has done this, would appreciate an idiots guide to doing the same thing.

    Cheerzzzzzzzzzzz...

    Dave

    Of course you can do it.
    The DVD of Vista recovery Toshiba help you install Vista, all the drivers Toshiba and tools, and it automatically creates all the partitions.

    So what you have to do is to boot from the recovery DVD and follow the instructions on-screen ;)

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    "How to do a clean install and configure with a full Version of Vista '

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

    And phone Activation may be necessary when you use the above installation method.

  • Cannot install Vista on the new hard drive

    original title: Please help!

    I have a dell laptop inspiron 1720, not the newest I know but it surfs the web. At least it used to. I had some sort of virus or something and my hard drive kept bluescreening on me. I said, well I want to do this thing faster and have more space anyway. Out a ram 1 g got 4g, out went the 120gig and got a 250. Went to reinstall dell support stuff and it went well. Then had my vista disk and started to install. Expanded files ok and everything. You all the way to the install tab end and nothing happens? Don't know what else to do? Any help would be great.

    Turns out I'm only semi retarded. My friend told me since I have a new hard drive, I would probably need to first load the driver for it. Then I got to the part when you choose a car and chose to load drivers. Of course I had to change discs in the middle of install and load a driver for the new hard drive and everything went smoothly after that.

  • Install Vista on the new hard drive with upgrade media

    Original harddrive in Lenovo has failed. I replaced but didn't have a recovery disk. I bought Windows Ultimate up grade, and he scored when I installed the new drive. After the initial installation, new drive must be reformatted (again). Now windows says my registration number is already installed. It was purchased by me and installed on my original Lenovo machine. I have the original product code on the back of my Lenovo and the new product code on Vista Ultimate box. What can I do to register again? Thank you. Mike

    You must first install the original operating system and activate.  THEN install the Vista upgrade and which activate.  You can't ignore all during the installation of the original operating system.  You can't do a full install of a drive to upgrade (or product key).  I suggest that contact the manufacturer for a set of discs of recovery of re - install the original system.  It is the only way that this is possible.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Install Vista on a new HARD drive help

    A few days ago my hard drive died. No idea why, but it has just stopped working. I went out and bought a new hard drive at best buy and went home to install Windows Vista Home Premium. Everything works fine until it gets to "Expand the files" around 26%. Once it gets there it just goes to the 'Blue screen of death '. I use a serious Vista x 86 iso to install it (it was my old OS so I just used the serial code I had). I tried to install it 3 times now and no luck.

    Now when I turn on my computer it will say "press any key to start from the CD or DVD and BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart"I did another disk and it burned at a lower speed and still happens. Anyone know what is happening?
